In 1966, the settlement of Rocky Harbour was incorporated into a community and has since been designated as a town, with seven councillors, one full time and one seasonal clerk. At least 90% of the town is serviced with water and sewer, paved roads and street lights.
Since the establishment of Gros Morne National Park in 1973 many tourism related businesses have increased employment and have given the town a financial boost.
With a population of approximately 978 residents, the Town of Rocky Harbour is one of the most desirable places to live and visit in Western Newfoundland. Many businesses have already been established within our town.
